How the Moon Regained Her Shape - Influenced by Native American folktales, this fascinating story explains why the moon changes shape and helps students deal with bullies. After the sun insults and bullies her, the moon feels so badly hurt that she shrinks and leaves the sky. The moon turns to a comet and her many friends on Earth, including rabbits and Native Americans, comfort her. Ultimately, the moon regains her full shape, happiness, and self-esteem to return to her orbit. An educational appendix gives advice about bullying, scientific information about the moon, and ideas for related crafts, recipes, and games.
Meet the Planets - Soar into the solar system to witness the first Favorite Planet Competition, emceed by dwarf planet Pluto. When the sun can't pick a favorite and the meteors leave for a shower, the readers become the judges. Pluto announces each planet with short, tongue-in-cheek facts that will entertain and educate readers. The art contains references to famous scientists, people in history, space technology, constellations, art, and classic literature.
Pieces of Another World - The touching story of a father and child's nighttime excursion to watch a meteor shower. Told through the eyes of the child, readers will feel as though they, too, are in the middle of the field watching the tiny bits of distant worlds blaze into our own. Includes a section that helps students learn the differences between meteors, meteoroids, meteorites, asteroids, and comets.
Saturn for My Birthday - Jeffrey wants Saturn and all 47 moons for his birthday. But he's not selfish - he'll share the rings with some of his friends at school and with his teacher.
